The Vienna tourist board has information about Sightseeing, Shows, Shopping, Dining and other information about Vienna on it’s website. A fairly comprehensive list of the museums in Vienna can be found on the Tour My Country webpage for Austria.

Tourist information on Vienna can be found in the Arrivals Hall of Vienna International Airport or at the Tourist Information Centre (Vienna 1) at Albertinaplatz/Maysedergasse, behind the Vienna State Opera that is open daily 9:00 am – 7:00 pm.
